Actually i'm 32, hardly old.

Real life ISN'T that sharp. Atmospherics ensure such. That image you showed simply looks un-natural. You are going to argue otherwise?

I suppose that's true but, heh, you have to be some kind of fanatic to pursue that. That said, if you REALLY hate changing water, it's kind of nice.

You have a few fish there that are much happier in a shcool, yet you are only getting one of each? Why is this? You can do that, but they may not live very long or happy lives.
